We are like any other humane society or rescue and can always use foster homes!!!! Animals always do so much better in a foster home setting rather than am adoption facility. We especially need foster homes for cats. If you are interested, please contact us for a Foster Home Application.

Our meetings are the 2nd Tuesdays of the month in Hopkinsville. Come and join us and you can see what helping sick and injured animals is all about. We can always use more members, more volunteers, more foster homes, etc. The more members we have, the more animals we can help. Call 270-887-4678 for dates and locations.

We also go to the Clarksville Petsmart Store from time to time with our adoptables. We are one of their Luv-A-Pet partners and have been for many many years. Our Petfinder site is updated as soon as possible.

Transportation north can be arranged for pets, especially if you live in the Pennsylvania and/or Massachusetts area. Just email us for more details.

We do not have a phone at our adoption facility. You can contact us by the phone number listed on each pet's page. Long distance calls cannot be returned. We do adopt to families from out of state, but we do not ship animals. You must come to our facility to adopt. If you live out of our area, we require a vet reference from you.


Our facility is located in Hopkinsville on Skyline Drive in the last door of the Bed 'N Biscuit boarding facility building. If you visit our facility you will sometime hear dogs that are being boarded. Those dogs at the kennels already have owners who are paying a fee to have them boarded at that facility. We cannot adopt out those animals nor do we have access to them. . Our cats have their own seperate space and get plenty of exercise and attention. They are all seen by our vet before coming to our adoption facility. Vet records are available on each animal. You can see any of our animals at a mutually convenient time, if you contact us at 270-885-7014 or 270-887-4678. We cannot return long distance calls. If you do not keep your scheduled appointment, our animals cannot be held for you.

Who We Are

We are a non-profit humane society run entirely by volunteers. We receive no state or federal funds. Our society takes in the injured and sick animals in our community first as funds permit. We do not take in owner surrendered animals. There are too many that are sick or injured that need our help.

We are a small group who have a big job in finding these animals permanent, loving homes. We depend upon fundraisers, memberships, and donations for our very existence. We are always in need of supplies, especially blue top Tidy Cat clumping kitty litter. Any and all donations are very much appreciated. Regardless of what people may have said about our organization, we will continue to help as many sick and injured animals as we possibly can. Most of the animals that come to us have a recovery period and are not usually available for adoption immediately. We keep our animals until we find an approved adoptive home. Please be assured we are there for the animals and their well being.

Adopting a friend

PLEASE NOTE: Our adoption fees (for all animals) is $70.00 . This includes the cost of a spay or neuter of that animal. At the present time we are only accepting injured or sick animals into our facility. All our fundraising efforts help offset the monthly vet bills for these animals. We cannot accept owner turn ins as those animals who are injured or sick and have no home, need our help first.

We only place young puppies and kittens to those who agree to have the animal spayed and/or neutered when age appropriate. Our vets do spays and neuters at 6 months of age. We pay that cost ourselves, but we ask that you use our local vets for this purpose. A spay/neuter certificate will be given to new adopters at the time of adoption. All adult animals are spayed and/or neutered before placement. All our adoptables are vet checked, up to date on shots, wormed and checked for heartworms. All cats are combo tested. The animals we have posted are waiting for permanent, loving homes.

PLEASE, If, for any reason, the adoption does not work out, we ask that the animal be returned to us!!!! We are always willing to take our animals back!!!!

DO NOT TAKE OUR ANIMALS TO THE LOCAL SHELTER. Call us and we will work with you on returning the pet to us. If you do not adhere to this, you will not be allowed to adopt other animals from us. Also, the local shelter will have a listing of those persons turning in humane society animals to their facility!
